Actor Don Cheadle is facing criticism after he posted a vile series of tweets wishing for the death of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Cheadle is an actor and director who has appeared in a number of recent superhero flicks including the Iron Man series, Avengers and Captain America. Perhaps his best-known role is as the Rwandan hotel manager Paul Rusesabagina in “Hotel Rwanda.”
On Saturday, the actor posted several messages on his Twitter account attacking Trump with profanity and death wishes. Cheadle wrote:
You are truly a POS https://t.co/cyTwxgxwDh

Cheadle did not apologize or remove the tweets even after people began calling him out for the nastiness. Eventually, he posted a new tweet claiming that the attacks were meant to be hyperbolic:
Oh, boy. Really? Do you know what “hyperbole” is? I don’t wish him actual death! Just want him to shut up and lose! https://t.co/YZxdJxIFdc

The liberal Huffington Post, which reported the incident, didn’t do Trump any favors when it added this note at the end of its story about Cheadle: Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S. CLICK LIKE IF YOU’RE PRO-LIFE!
“Of course, the question remains: what would the media say about a conservative celeb telling Hillary to die an awful death? I’m sure they’d have some choice words,” Newsbusters’ Sarah Stites responded.
The incident is another example of the liberal media bias. While the mainstream media constantly attacks Trump for making discriminatory comments, they fail to hold Clinton to the same standards.
Clinton’s pro-abortion policies alone are some of the most radical and discriminatory to ever come from a presidential candidate. Clinton opposes Indiana’s new law that protects unborn babies from discriminatorily being aborted because of their sex, race or a disability. She also wants to force every taxpayer, no matter what their religious or moral beliefs are, to pay for abortions.
Clinton’s pro-abortion position is extreme, discriminatory and out of touch with most Americans, but the mainstream media isn’t telling that part of the story.
